Inuit Revitalization Project
Hovak A. Johnston
The Inuit Tattoo Revitalization Project was created by Hovak Johnston and Marjorie Tahbone in 2016. It is a non-profit project dedicated to reestablishing traditional Inuit tattooing practices, such as the hand poke method. The project raised money to travel to small communities across Canada’s north and give women permanent traditional markings as a way to revitalize and preserve this endangered art form.
